Overview of Indica Course Introduction to Rabindranath Tagore : Life and Works

What are the metaphysics and ethics that undergird the creative impulses of Rabindranath Tagore, Asia’s first Nobel laureate and composer of the national anthem of India?

To answer this question, we have curated an INDICA Course that offers an opportunity to learn about the life and works of the “Poet Laureate of India” and discover the deeper aesthetic, philosophical, and spiritual roots of the Sūkti-s or noble utterances of a Modern Indian Rishi. It will be an immersion in Tagore’s creative and critical corpus to help the learner understand the keynote of Tagore’s monumental literary, artistic, and altruistic oeuvre – which is the unique Hindu emphasis on aspiring for the higher modes of existence, the life of the spirit, without denying the life of flesh and blood for a moment, while treating the latter as an important site of the unfolding of – and a veritable proof of – the former.

In this webinar, our faculty will overview this INDICA Course on Introduction to Rabindranath Tagore : Life and Works.
